New Podcast: Nifra – Rebel Radio


After 100 episodes of her radio show “Be Progressed” the Queen of Trance, Nifra, has revamped her show with a new title and feel. It now a bit harder and faster due to the increased focus on trance. Although only 2 episodes in this is looking to be a solid show that’s more than worthy of a free subscription.

So much respect for John 00 Flemming and everything he has done for Trance music over the years. He keeps it serious and dark, a side of the genre long forgotten as of late. This is a massive release that fully explores the original Tech Trance sound that is most definitely still alive.

Must Subscribe: John 00 Flemming – Global Trance Grooves


Thanks to my buddy Christian for clueing me in on this one, I’ve known on John 00 for years but haven’t really gotten into his stuff again until recently. GTG’s slogan is “the serious side of Trance” which couldn’t be more spot on. No room for cheese or pop here, the episodes start with a tech-trance “deep mix” then progress into full-on Psy or Trance with a unique guest mixer finishing up each show.
